Dick's Picks 16
A worthy purchase, if you're interested in supporting the band. The Lovelight on DP16 is from 11/7, which you can still stream here on the archive.
Set 1 - You might want to skip the 9:00 Dire Wolf, as the entire thing is played twice in the same song for some reason - there are plenty of great '70 versions that don't feel like the band is rehearsing in front of a live audience. The first Cumberland, unfortunately, suffers as well. But the rest of the set is very fine, very Pig-laden: his schoolgirl is now......er......13! (Ron, you baaaad) Good Lovin' has that oh-so-light jazzy touch to the jam, and Easy Wind is sooooooo slooooooow and stony - THIS is them tapping right into that psychedelic rhythm, and when Pig busts out the harp, well now - everything just seems just right.
Set 2 is rather beyond words - it's every bit as good as it appears to be; one long suite with that Dark Star "envelope" crossing over at various times, some new instrumentals tried out that later would develop into familiar tunes, and a really hot Caution meltdown - Dick was right on the money with this selection.
